Up until a few years ago, I have not heard a word about take off software. The whole thing was totally alien to me. However, as soon as I entered the construction business, I got the feeling it was one of the key components of this whole industry. Construction takeoff software plays the role of giving business a general idea about the kind of planning that is needed to deliver the goods. That idea would have been pretty vague without the construction estimating.

I think the companies who are involved with anything related to construction know the importance of take off software and hence, they always keep on a look-out for the one that is the latest in the market and also satisfies their goals. To be honest, I would have to admit that when I first heard this term, I kind of thought it was just another mechanism used in the industry to maximize gains and I did not realize its full potential at that time.

However, slowly but surely I began to gauge how critical it was in running the whole construction and its related industry. So, while at first I did sort of wondered why the guys involved with the process of construction estimating were so highly paid… I soon got my answer. The work involved was daunting to the folks who knew nothing about the whole stuff of construction takeoff software. But once I got used with the whole mechanism i.e, how the thing worked, I knew it must be a piece of cake for the guys who do it on a regular basis. It then came as a big surprise for me when one of my friends, Sandra, told me that her company still relies on the manual side of the things. I don`t know why would any company do that in the 21st century.

In the near future it might help to save some money but the business would indeed have to suffer if it does not upgrade & overhauls its process in the long run. Infact from a field of HR… I am seriously thinking to venture into the area related with, construction estimating. For one, the work is quite exciting as well as crucial for the whole business to function. Add to it, the fact that it is quite a handsomely paid job & you know that`s enough of a temptation for anyone.
